Fun but difficult
Can you remember a game called Fur Fighters? It was a third-person shooter where you play as a variety of animals each with their own unique abilities and were tasked in finding their babies.
The game was released on Dreamcast and updated version was released on PS2 called Fur Fighters: Viggo’s Revenge which was the version I played.
I enjoyed Viggo’s Revenge quite a bit but dear freaking god was it difficult. I can’t be the only one that found the game to be difficult. Some bosses were easy whereas others would make even Ninja Gaiden players say “that’s bullshit”. Some of the platforming was fiddly and certain areas were goddamn infuriating.
All the anger-inducing shit aside though, the game has charm and a lot of it. Its cel-shaded art style is really eye-catching and vibrant. Fur Fighters may be old but thanks to its art style, it still looks pretty darn good today.
Each playable character looks great and they all have personality, which is awesome. It’s also a pretty damn good achievement by the developers, to make each character unique.
The reason I’m bringing up Fur Fighters is that I was reorganising my games shelf. Whilst I was going through my PS2 games I came across it and I thought, why not write about it? There doesn’t seem to be much discussion about Fur Fighters which is a shame because it’s a fun game that deserves to be played.
